Rose Week 2013
April Aromatics Rosenlust is a perfume for rose lovers. If you want a “garden” rose, you’ll want to try this.
Roselust is a citrus rose. It opens with a strong blast of grapefruit with hints of watery rose. The heart of Rosenlust is a grapefruit rose, very realistic, true and “living”. The dry-down of Rosenlust is a “fresh” rose with a hint of powdery orris. Rosenlust is a realistic soliflore; it’s naturally beautiful. There’s not much to Rosenlust but really is beautiful rose soliflore.
Notes listed include rose otto, Bulgarian rose, rosewater, pink grapefruit, ambrette, tonka, and orris. Launch date 2011. PERFUMER – Tanja Boching
Give Rosenlust a try if you like rose and you’re looking for a rose that doesn’t smell synthetic. Give it a try if you like Hermès Pamplemousse Rose, Chloé L’eau EDT, CREED Fleur de Rose Bulgarie and/or Anu Essentials Sita. I find it to be a more feminine rose but it’s for anyone that wants to smell like a “true” rose.
I’m very surprised by the projection and sillage of this one. It is above average. I have never tried an all-natural perfume that hangs around like this one does!
The 1 oz bottle of Rosenlust retails for €169 at April Aromatics.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – A grapefruit rose. One to try if you find other rose soliflores too synthetic. This one is authentic and vivid.
